Carolina Journal Radio No. 868: Lawmakers to return to Raleigh for mid-January session

After a December break, N.C. legislators return to Raleigh this month. They could vote to override Gov. Roy Cooper’s veto of the state budget bill. They also could try to hash out final deals on the farm bill and other legislation left unresolved in 2019. Becki Gray, John Locke Foundation senior vice president, analyzes the upcoming legislative session. The pursuit of diversity on college campuses is hurting American higher education. Heather Mac Donald, fellow at the Manhattan Institute, explains how in her recent book, The Diversity Delusion. Mac Donald shared her concerns during a recent visit to Raleigh for a summit sponsored by the National Association of Scholars. The General Assembly has finalized new reforms to laws involving sexual assault and child sexual abuse. You’ll hear highlights from legislative debate over the measures. Three generations of the Scott family played major roles in N.C politics. Longtime Raleigh News & Observer political columnist Rob Christensen tells the Scotts’ story in the book The Rise and Fall of the Branchhead Boys. Christensen explains how the Scott family story fits within North Carolina’s political narrative. The federal government recently announced that Robeson County had been reinstated to a program called equitable sharing. It allows local law enforcement agencies to use proceeds from asset forfeiture involving federal authorities. Jon Guze, John Locke Foundation director of legal studies, explains why the news is not entirely good. Guze says federal equitable sharing helps law enforcement agencies bypass worthwhile state restrictions on civil asset forfeiture abuse.
